More than 1,000 analyses and studies carried out on ZEISS equipment
In an official ceremony on 4th April, The State Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg became the first labs@location Partner for ZEISS in Russia. In the Council Hall of the Hermitage, a supplement to the existing collaboration agreement was signed between the State Hermitage, ZEISS, and the OPTEC Group. The subject of the supplement was the creation of a joint research and consultation reference center implemented on the basis of the State Hermitage’s Department for Scientific Restoration and Conservation.
Today we are holding a historic signing ceremony with ZEISS, a company that has enabled us for many years now to be at the leading edge in the field of the restoration and study of museum exhibits. Now we are entering a new phase: we are creating a laboratory where new devices will be put into operation, tested, and demonstrated. This project is an embodiment of everything for which we were created – doing, experimenting, collaborating, and also providing an example for other museums and institutions.
Mikhail Piotrovsky, General Director of the State Hermitage, said in his speech.
